Hi! I'm Kent 👋

I'm a software engineer and teacher. I was born in 1988 (you can do the math) and grew up in Idaho. After graduating High School and serving a 2 year mission in the Missouri Independence Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I went to BYU where I graduated with both a Bachelor and Master's degree in Information Systems with an emphasis on Software Application Development.

I've written code for More Good Foundation, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, USAA, Domo, Parakeet, Workfront, Alianza, PayPal, and my open source code has been used by millions of people all over the globe.

I now work for myself full-time as an educator. I create content all about Web Development on various platforms including: egghead.io, Frontend Masters, YouTube, Twitter, and my own sites like TestingJavaScript.com 🏆

While in school at BYU, I met my wife Brooke. We live in Utah with our four kids and dog 👧👦👦👦🐶.
